Acorn TV December 2020 Highlights






7 Dec: BLOOD SERIES 2

Line of Duty favourite Adrian Dunbar stars in darker than dark drama, Blood. This tense psychological series sees Unforgotten's Carolina Main in a stand-out turn as Cat Hogan, an estranged daughter who must return to the family home in rural Ireland, following the sudden, seemingly accidental death of her mother...but someone has Blood on their hands.

7 Dec: OPERATION BUFFALO

Inspired by true events, Operation Buffalo is a satiric thriller with a dark edge, that shines a light on a little known and highly controversial part of Australia's modern history - the British nuclear testing in the South Australia Outback at the height of the Cold War. It tells the tale of undercover operations and questionable behaviour at a time where no one knows who to trust or what to believe. It will have you hooked from its action-packed start. Stars Ewen Leslie, James Cromwell and Jessica De Gouw.

14 Dec: BANG SERIES 2

BAFTA Cymru-winning, dual language Welsh-English drama set in Port Talbot follows a brother and sister on opposite sides of the law. Criminal Sam (Jacob Ifan, I'll Find You, Hinterland) and his ambitious policewoman sister Gina (Catrin Stewart, Doctor Who, Misfits) face new challenges in this second series as Sam is due to be released from prison and Gina must track down what seems to be a serial killer...but could there be a personal motive that puts the troubled pair in danger?

21 Dec: HAPPY AT SEA SERIES 1

This Swedish comedy drama with a lot of heart follows the trials and tribulations of the King family. When their mother Maud dies, Klara and Thomas return home to support their father, with their own families in tow. They decide to stick around for the whole season, to spend the summer at the family paradise, among the rocks and cliffs of Stockholm's archipelago. Three generations, one family and a lot of personalities...how will they manage together for five weeks?

21 Dec: ELIZABETH I
